Description

Sherline 4400 CNC-ready 17 in Lathe

Any Sherline lathe can be ordered ready for the application of stepper motors and Computer Numeric Control (CNC). Sherline
installs stepper motor mounts in place of the leadscrew and crosslide handwheels. These mounts are designed to accept 23-frame size stepper motors. A dampened coupling for the 1/4″ motor shaft is included. The coupling drives the leadscrew through two 3/8″ bearings with adjustable preload to remove end play.

Standard equipment is the same as on the model 4000 (4100 metric) which includes:

  • CNC-Ready includes stepper motor mounts(Note that CNC-ready machines cannot be operated manually until
    stepper motors are installed.)
  • 90 VDC motor with electronic speed controller
  • 2.75″ (70mm) x 6.0″ (152mm) crosslide
  • 24″ (610mm) bed that has 17″ (431mm) between centers
  • 2.5″ (63mm) resettable “zero” handwheel on the leadscrew
  • Two 2″ (51mm) resettable “zero” handwheels on the crosslide
  • Feed screw and a rocker tool post (P/N 3057) substituted for the standard tool post used on the shortbed lathes
  • Standard 1-5/8″ (41mm) laser engraved aluminum handwheels
  • Pulleys, belt, faceplate, lathe dog and two dead centers
  • Three hexagonal keys
  • Tool post
  • Sharpened high-speed steel cutting tool
  • Eight foot three-wire power cord
  • Instruction booklet

Once you have the machine, you will need to attach stepper motors and connect them through a driver to a computer. Several
aftermarket companies provide the proper motors, drivers and software to complete the package. You can read a list of these
supplies and visit their web sites for price comparisons by visiting the CNC Dealers page within Sherline’s site. Sherline also
offers high quality stepper motors, which can be found in the accessories section of this site.

**PLEASE NOTE CNC READY MACHINES DO NOT INCLUDE COMPUTER, STEPPER MOTORS OR CONTROLLER. THEY CAN BE PURCHASED SEPARATELY **
